I live in LA and I'm looking for experienced partners to do some touring in the Baldy area. Safety is paramount to me. I don't get down with egos in the backcountry, i would much rather be conservative and make it home safe to ride again another day.
My experience level: I have been snowboarding since the 90s, splitboarding for three seasons. I have my level 1 aasi certification and all my avy gear. I have somewhere between 15-20 tours under my belt, all in the tahoe area. I would say I feel confident in my ability to ascend and descend backcountry routes. I am still a beginner when it comes to forecasting, reading snow conditions, and trip planning.
Ideally I would like to go out with people who have more experience than me and are willing to teach a bit. Especially folks who know the angeles national forest better than me.
